Are dogs welcome on the Montana Trail 406?
Dogs are allowed on most of the MT406 and can be enjoyable companions in the backcountry. Thru-hikers of long-distance trails can increase the challenges to complete an end-to-end thru-hike with a canine companion. On the MT406 dogs are not allowed in Glacier National Park along the trail corridor. Local land managers, particularly in bear country, may require dogs to remain on a leash to avoid causing stress to local wildlife or creating potentially unsafe interactions between dogs and bears. Food storage orders apply to dog foods too.
